In our (Hughes Network Systems) testing of the 4.x browsers, we found that the use of "keep-alive" TCP conections was not working when the browser switched to secure mode (SSL). Support of persistent connectionsis critical for browser performance in satellite-based networks.
gagan, when will keep alive be implemented/on for http?
It is already in... but we had some problems and so wasn't switched on by default. Its on my list of things for M14. and its in bug 10738 adding dep.
Depends on: 10738
Bulk moving all Browser Security bugs to new Security: General component. The previous Security component for Browser will be deleted.
